UAW Local 2320
Solidarity with Columbia Students and Protesters
Posted On: Apr 24, 2024
UAW Local 2320 (NOLSW) stands in solidarity with the students, workers, and demonstrators at Columbia University facing unjust arrest and reprisal for peacefully protesting their university’s complicity in Israel’s genocide in and continued illegal occupation of Palestine. NOLSW shares a vision for a Palestine free from apartheid and occupation and we are horrified at President Shafik’s decision to call in the New York City Police Department to arrest protesters, many of whom are Muslim, Palestinian, and students of color. Taking punitive measures against students exercising their fundamental rights to expression, association, and peaceful assembly is inconsistent with democracy, civil liberties and bedrock principles of human rights. We denounce the suspensions and extrajudicial evictions that university administrators have undertaken against their own student body and demand the immediate reinstatement of all suspended student protestors, and for Columbia to drop all legal and academic charges against them.
